It’s good to know that sometimes we all could play in the Premier League
Barnstone Colts against Long Eaton United, that’s when it happened to me. Jonesey had got down the right, squared the ball across, and suddenly I had cocked it up. Good and proper.
And then on Sunday afternoon, Carlos Tevez became the latest man to massage our egos. He gave Sunday League pub-ballers up and down the country the shot in the arm they needed. “I can still make it…my Gran could have scored that.” The thing is, she actually could have.
We all know that there are times when professionals miss a sitter. It’s a Rosenthal, a Stone, a Kanu, an Iwelumo. But previous examples make this one no less funny for the Sunderland fans, gesturing that our Carlos may partake in self-pleasure. And it certainly makes it no less hard to bear for the Citeh fans. They had assumed, achieved, and almost celebrated a one-nil lead.
And it was taken away from them, by King Carlos of Eastlands.
